Understanding Waxings

There are multiple ways to remove hair without paying a fortune. The most common is waxing.

Waxing is a quick and cost efficient method of removing unwanted hair, especially on the face. Currently there are two y used types of wax: hard and soft. Hard wax is used on more sensitive areas, like the lips of your vagina when getting Brazilian. Soft wax is used on legs, faces, and underarms—areas that can handle more tug and pull. One of the most common ingredients in all waxes is pine rosin, which helps the wax harden and bond not only your skin, but to the hair follicles and paper as well.

The facts about waxing:

  • You can get waxing done on any part of your body.

  • When you go in to get waxed, whether facial or body, you always leave with red areas and sometimes bleeding. This redness normally subsides about an hour or two after the waxing. The reason for this is that the wax only pulls out the hair from the follicles.

Pros And Cons:

Quick. Can be painful and tender the whole day after waxing. Hair has to be 1 cm before it can be re waxed. Hair grows back finer than before. Causes redness and sometimes bleeding. Lasts 6 to 8 weeks. Some are allergic to wax ingredients.
